Mixed-Up Mag blog hop

 Hi everyone, I hope you are enjoying meeting the Mixed Up Design Team! Welcome to my blog.
As you know, each of us is sharing our favourite makes for Mixed Up today, and the project I’ve chosen to share with you was quite a large mixed media piece called ‘Mosaic heart’

In this project I really enjoyed creating texture and a colour tapestry using air dry paper clay. This was very easy to roll out; stamp into; shape and paint. I was also able to combine a couple of favourite things along side my clay mosaic- crackle paste and rusty wire!!….who could resist? There was also  a few rusty painting techniques thrown in too! Oh and a touch of bling (for juxtaposition purposes!) All in all it was a lot of fun and said a little about my take on the subject of romance into the bargain! Full step by step instructions can be found on the magazine site. It was my first front page feature in a magazine. I was delighted! I hope you get a chance to check out the full details.

I’m also showing a sneak peek of something else I’ve got coming up soon which celebrates the use of colour and gelli plate print left overs!

  1. This is one of my favourites, all the things I love, crackles rust and heart wings. I love the way you created the heart with stamped clay. This piece just ticks all the boxes and so inspiring xx
